SPIRULINA

SUPER ALGAE

Spiru-lina.

Spiru-what?

It sounds super fancy and seems too foreign to be able to pronounce. Intimidating, right? (At first.) Complicated? Not so much. SPIRULINA is a nutrient-rich blue-green algae packed with antioxidants (carotenoids), vitamins, minerals, iron and 8 essential amino acids and protein. This "superfood" acts as a natural detox, eliminating toxins while alkalizing the body. It contains ultra-hydrating chlorophyll, beta-carotene (vitamin A), vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12. Its a supermodel secret to healthy, radiant, glowing skin and bright, vibrant eyes. More good news- it's vegan and gluten-free, too.
